Charts n’ Adds: 3/23 – 3/29

charlesbradleyssThis week an artist deserving of all the number one spots in the world has our number one, and our hearts: Charles Bradley. KJHK Music Staff writer Colin Smith says Changes “is a blissfully crafted serenade, laden with a soothing horn entourage and a guiding backdrop of rim knocks, humming organ and golden backup vocals. Charles Bradley, the grand master himself, provides raspy, soulful sermons about love, life, and societal issues.” This album reflects on the large comeback that soul and funk sounds are making into contemporary releases; hopefully such pure, groovy soul can make the way for more unknown artists, much like Bradley was, to bring soul back with unadulterated force.

Number two is a long runner on our chart, DIIV with Is The Is Are, followed up by Animal Collective with Panting With. Kendrick Lamar’s surprise drop untitled. unmastered. moved from number one last week to number four, followed up by an album that entered the top five it’s first week on the charts, Hop Along’s reissue of Get Disowned.

New to the KJHK chart this week: Hop Along with their reissue of Get Disowned, Ringo Deathstarr with Pure Mood, Santigold with 99cents, Into It. Over It. with Standards, Bibio with A Mineral Love, Mount Moriah with How To Dance, and Thao & the Get Down Stay Down with A Man Alive.
